EBÈNE, MAURITIUS--(Marketwire - Oct. 5, 2012) - During September, leading global foreign exchange trader, educator and author Mario Sant Singh, looked at risk currencies and precious metals, in his AskMarioSingh.com blog, "Your toughest Forex Questions answered daily".
Risk currencies including the EUR, GBP, AUD, NZD and CAD rallied against the USD and the JPY against a background of lacklustre hiring in the US Non-Farm Payroll (NFP), and the GBP demonstrated near-term upside on the back of positivism for the European Central Bank (ECB) bond purchasing programme and the German approval of the European Stability Mechanism (ESM), and because of USD weakening after the Federal Reserve announced another round of monetary stimulus.
Mario also looked at the Gold and Silver rally as an investment hedge in the light of quantitative easing bringing further inflation and currency value loss, and speculative forward upside on possible intervention by the Bank of Japan (BOJ) to support the Yen.
